Ms. Judy Brillinger and her trusty book wagon is no stranger to East Prep students. Last year she found us and has been an adopted friend bringing wonderful books for our students of all ages to adopt. This year she initially brought books for the 1st and 4th graders who were wowed by her read alouds and faced with the daunting choices of choosing books for themselves and their classrooms. Then, we found some time for her to also visit 2nd and 3rd graders lest they be jealous. Ms. Judy's love for books and her son lives on through her charity work in Dustyreads.
East Preparatory Academy's Mission
East Preparatory Academy, serving grades K-8, is dedicated to improving the lives of its students by providing authentic learning experiences in a collaborative, nurturing environment that will build a foundation for students success in school, at future work, and in life.
To achieve the mission, our School will integrate current learning technologies into the classroom, offer authentic learning experiences that are respectful of how children learn best, and offer a schedule and support activities that enable each student to achieve to his or her potential. We want our students to leave the School with the skills and abilities necessary to achieve academic excellence, personal growth, and success as lifelong learners. This mission requires the support of the faculty, staff, families, and community in order to encourage and empower students to be responsible and valued citizens.
Students at East Prep have found a new, improved use for all their loose change. With some staff direction and plenty of newfound inspiration, the school has once again reached out to connect with the community around us to find ways and means for us to help. Three places already making a difference were chosen to learn about how even young people could partner with them. The City Mission, Lutheran Metropolitan Ministries, and the Domestic Violence and Child Advocacy Center serve our neighborhoods and now have renewed ties to East Prep.
East Preparatory Academy is extremely proud to be named School of the Year 2016!
